A service of the University Honors Program for all KU undergraduates

Churchill Scholarship

At least 14 Winston Churchill Scholarships are awarded annually to graduating seniors or recent graduates in science, engineering, or math fields for graduate study at Churchill College at Cambridge University. Students apply directly to a specific program at Cambridge and concurrently for the Churchill Scholarship. The scholarship provides full financial support, including living expenses, tuition and fees, travel expenses, and qualified research expenses. KU may nominate up to two candidates. The new campus application will be available in the spring, with the campus deadline being in late April of each year. Contact Dr. Anne Wallen (annewallen@ku.edu) for more details.


Campus deadline for KU nomination: late April. National deadline for KU nominees: late September.
